Suspected water damage, black screen but still vibrates

I wore my watch in the shower and in water for two years before I realized it really shouldn’t be used in water. I had some weird issues with the screen turning green and then the screen went black but showed a small white line flickering near the top when I would try to reboot (holding one button and two). It showed still connected on my phone, and the vibration still works if I press the screen. I left it alone for the last month (no charging) hoping maybe it had water inside that needed to dry out but today it’s the same situation: still vibrates, black screen with tiny white line flickering, won’t reboot. It seems there’s still something working inside the watch, I’m considering taking it apart and drying it out if I can find water inside, but my concern is I can’t turn the watch off. It still vibrates and shows the white line when I hold the buttons, so my question is if I take it apart while still partly on, will I damage it further? Am I wrong that it’s on at all? Thank you!

@alydd “if I take it apart while still partly on, will I damage it further” keep in mind that with what your watch is doing right now, it is pretty much unusable. By at least trying to repair it you may get it fixed and thus get some more use out of it. Use these guides Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 to work on it. Going by what you are describing be prepared to at least change the battery and the display. Remove the motherboard and clean it with some high grade (90%+) isopropyl alcohol

@alydd I have the same issue and managed to reboot the watch. So while charging, hold down both buttons until you see the Samsung logo. The display still flickers a bit after the reboot, but hopefully it will be usable. Hope this helps.
